Durban – A man’s leg was partially amputated when he was pinned under a forklift at a business in Glen Anil, Durban, on Wednesday.

A shipping container fell on the forklift operator while he was offloading cargo, Marshall Security spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said.

“The driver of the forklift, a man believed to be approximately 30 years of age, was left pinned between the forklift and the ground. Swift action by the man’s colleagues saw him removed from the wreckage.”
